Nantes have completed the signing of Liverpool midfielder Pedro Chirivella, according to French publication FootSur7.

It always felt likely that a Spanish midfielder would be on his way out of Anfield this summer.

It’s not often that a young player turns his back on the reigning European and soon-to-be Premier League champions, but Chirivella knows deep down that a move away from Liverpool is for the best.

Despite a number of impressive performances in cup competitions, the long-serving youngster has not played a single second of top-flight football under Jurgen Klopp this season.
